Reproduction Work: An Essay Made for Learnin'One thing I've noticed about all plagiarists: the first thing they do when caught is to claim ignorance. "I didn't mean to infringe!" "I love your art!" "I never said -outright- it wasn't original--I was only -redrawing-."Reproduction Work: An Essay Made for Learnin'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ugh. That word.
Take a seat next to teacher here and let's have us a talk.
That word is not some magic coverall for trying to pass someone else's work off as your own--and you ARE trying to pass it off as your own if you're changing signatures, names, etc. with no mention as to the original creator or characters you're appropriating. We have a word for that shit...say it with me now...plaaaagiaaarismmmm. Good job.
But, Teacher! Isn't copying a way to learn from other people?
The short answer is: Sure it is! Just don't be a douchebag about it.
I was fortunate enough in my education to be forced to take a Master's Class. For 20 weeks we did nothing but reproduce classical works by artists like Da Vinci and Michelangelo in charcoal and pastel--and I hated eve

WANTED: ALL BOOS AND GHOULS FROM FAIRYLANDAttention Citizens of Fairyland:WANTED: ALL BOOS AND GHOULS FROM FAIRYLAND2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The King of Fairyland is maniacally seeking out his subjects, and no one in the Kingdom is to be spared. Clandestine meetings have been arranged between the Monarch and key figures throughout the realm. While no one knows for certain why the King is demanding all citizens report to His Majesty, rumor has it that Death has visited the Royal Family this cold, dark Halloween season. No one knows who was killed or in what fashion, but gossip has started to fly.
Are you a witch, wizard, ghoul, monster, or other citizen of Fairyland?
If so, the King would like to recruit YOU to help guide the Royal Detectives as they seek to solve the mystery surrounding the death in the Monarchy.
If you are a citizen and you would like to help give clues to the detectives (game players), simply note Halloween-HQ, tell us which magical creature you are (please be creative), and state that you would lik

Amazon phonecase art thief hurting me and even u!Hiya people, just a warning that there's a company called DIY IPHONE CASE on Amazon who has been using artworks (Both official work and fan art) to make iphone cases, these son of a bitches don't have license for it, and they certainly didn't DRAW THEM! >:I I know because my Pikachu artwork also got stolen, they don't even do a good job at making it fit the cases either, they stretch it and crop it unprofessionally, anyway I have reported on them before but I think my report wasn't valid for whatever reason, well folks I am begging that you help me report on them. And also check whether they have stolen your artworks too, I have seen some fan art on there but I don't remember who drew them etc. So if you do, please don't hesitate to report them or write it down on the comment below so that we can help in putting this company out of business. We are artists, we don't like art thieves. They shouldn't make money out of our hard work. They can go to hell.Amazon phonecase art thief hurting me and even u!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

La Ley SOPAHoy día todo internauta asiduo habrá escuchado algo en relación a las propuestas de ley del congreso norteamericano conocidas como:La Ley SOPA4 years ago in Personal More Like This
SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) en la que los motores de búsqueda directa en los Estados Unidos bloquearian los sitios de Internet fuera de ese país que se dediquen principalmente a la distribución de contenido sin licencia.
PIPA(Protect Intelectual Property Act) Similar a la anterior y que solo se aplicaría dentro de los Estados Unidos.
Las reacciones son muchas y casi todas contrarias a la aprobación de las mismas.
En mi caso particular, me pregunto ¿de que manera me afectara? y ¿como afectara a la vida misma de la red global mas grande del mundo conocida como Internet?.
Este articulo pretende proveer información al respecto, con el fin de que cada uno de ustedes se formen un juicio mas claro en relación a este suceso.

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq
